The last thing you want is a beautiful heat transfer that is skewed on your t shirt. Watch this short guide on how to center a transfer on your t shirt.
9. Don’t Use EasyPress Like An Iron
With some iron on transfers, an ordinary home iron can be moved about over the transfer, just as if you were ironing a piece of clothing.
It’s not a good idea to do this with the EasyPress. Just apply the required pressure (firm, medium, or light), and keep it in one place.
10. Re-Hit Back Of Tee
Especially if you don’t have an EasyPress Mat, but are using a towel or something similar, it’s a good idea to flip the t shirt over and re-press the tee from the back.
This does not need to be done for the full time again, just half the original time or less.
11. Care Instructions
There are a few washing and care instructions that are important to remember if you want your transfer to last.
Wait 24 hours before washing the garment for the first time
Turn clothing with vinyl inside out
Do not use bleach & avoid harsh detergents
